Eight Ways to Change the World: Leaders from the 189 countries in the UN promised to deliver eight Millennium Development Goals by 2015. Only world leaders can deliver aid, cancel debt and make trade fair. But it is ordinary citizens who have brought them to the negotiating table, by standing up and demanding justice.
Let us keep poverty and development at the top of the political agenda so that rich countries will fulfil their promise to increase aid, cancel debt and make trade fair. We must keep them to their promise.
Goal 1: To eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
Goal 2: To give all children a primary school education
Goal 3: To promote gender equality and empower women
Goal 4: To reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among children under five
Goal 5: To improve maternal health
Goal 6: To combat HIV/Aids, malaria and other diseases
Goal 7: To ensure environmental sustainability
Goal 8: To develop a global partnership
Help keep the promise. Get involved.
